Just the tip of the iceberg
It's disgraceful that any company would sell a product that uses computers and software yet lacks top quality security, especially transportation vehicles be they planes, trains, autos, etc. Oh wait, Microsucks has been selling defective computer products for 25+ years. For a minute I thought we had a revelation where hackers were suddenly able to hack into PCs or other computers due to a outrageous lack of security and massive code defects. Apparently nothing new here as crims have been entering digitally secured vehicles and removing valuables, without setting off any alarms. Other crims just swap out the ECU and drive the car away to be sold or chop shopped.
The fact that Jeep and Tesla are this week's fully compromised models where hackers can take control of the vehicle should give pause to the manic efforts by the UK to get autonomous vehicles on the roadways well before they are properly engineered to do so. When security is an after thought, the Tesla/Jeep issues come by the boatloads. This weeks real world hacking displays show just the tip of the security iceberg that is about to be exploited at an exponential rate. AVs will offer hackers hundreds more hacking opportunities per model over conventional current automotive models.
